Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Admonishment
    issued in FL, 2014

    updated

    An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Gary’s comment: “This private admonishment was solely due to a complaint to the TFB by a disgruntled attorney who lost a trial to me and whose client was an abuser and exploiter of the elderly. He complained that the description of his client we made in the Complaint about his client, was "unprofessional", although the allegations we made against this nasty person were spot on accurate.”
